Reducing your stress and anxiety level: Regular yoga practice has infinite benefits, including reducing the level of stress and relieving anxiety and this is because it relaxes the nervous system. It also improves your flexibility, elasticity, and improves your physical and mental balance. It strengthens your muscles and bones and reinforces our immune system. It also helps us to rest and sleep better at night.
We will go hiking every afternoon, we will walk and feel the rustling of the leaves under our feet, the little birds singing, our breathing speeding up as we go, our eyes relaxing looking at the horizon. We walk consciously, in silence, connected to ourselves and to nature.
We will work on self-esteem and self-confidence. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy and our inner judge is terrible and tells us horrible things that make us get discouraged and unmotivated, sometimes we think that this is the natural thing and that we are like that and that’s it. There is another way to live and treat yourself, you just have to learn how. In both group and individual practices we emphasize not to get into comparisons, not to crush us, to accept ourselves as we are. We don’t lack or have anything to spare.
We will practice assertive communication, a way of communicating consciously to express our ideas, opinions, points of view and our desires and needs. In a clear, consistent, direct, balanced, honest and respectful way, without the intention of hurting or harming, and acting from a perspective of self-confidence. We will learn to communicate in a direct way, without offending. This way of communicating will help us to manage conflicts, negotiate and establish conversations with different people and in different contexts.
